 The Mission of Dumbarton Oaks

Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, in Washington, DC, is an institute of Harvard University dedicated to supporting scholarship internationally in Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies through fellowships, meetings, exhibitions, and publications. Located in Georgetown and bequeathed by Robert Woods Bliss and Mildred Barnes Bliss, Dumbarton Oaks welcomes scholars to consult its books, images, and objects, and the public to visit its garden, museum, and music room for lectures and concerts.

The program in Byzantine Studies at Dumbarton Oaks supports scholarship on the civilization of the Byzantine Empire from the fourth to fifteenth centuries and its interactions with neighboring cultures. Since its establishment in 1940, the program has hosted a continuous series of residential fellows and academic events such as public lectures, symposia, and colloquia. An active publications program sponsors an annual journal, symposium proceedings, and occasional monographs. Staff and fellows have access to an incomparable research library, Image Collections & Fieldwork Archives, and the Byzantine Collection.
